McDonald's in Chicago is the latest Apple Store copycat - but not the first by far

McDonald's new flagship store is making a clear effort to mimic the Apple Store. AppleInsider takes a look at the plan, and also a takes a look back at Microsoft, Sony, and others who have "borrowed" elements of the Apple Store aesthetic in retail.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

...and eliminating the human element as much as possible.

Nice, but I'll take my more pedestrian stores with actual humans.

Given the general state of McDonald's employees I've encountered since I once worked at McDonald's, and doing some extrapolation, you can have your pedestrian stores and actual humans.

Being at a place like this store, the human contact is the least and most forgettable part of the experience.
